Cami Myers is part of Kingdom Impact Theater Ministries, the Next Generation, though she’s been with us awhile.
Maybe you've seen her greeting people at shows at our hospitality table, or sitting in singing with the ladies’ worship ensemble, Chos3n. She’s also behind the scenes (or out front) photographing our performances, such as those she did for “Freedom Song” promotions.
All of those activities she began as a high school intern. She’s now preparing for her senior year of college, studying psychology and creative writing, wondering how to use them in the "adulting" world to come.
All music that tells the story of redemption through Jesus Christ is gospel music. Yet in some circles "gospel music" is confined to a niche -- a certain style of music; a style of music associated with African-Americans.
In that sense, components of "gospel music" are symbolized by two easily identifiable symbols: a choir and robes. These symbols come from a powerful aesthetic in African-American heritage; yet there are dangers in defining gospel music and African-Americans by these two symbols alone.
